Hot!!! Phew…Still here!!

But I went out.

It’s a really dry heat here in Taupo, unlike the muggyness we are used to in Auckland.

I am working mainly nights at the moment so tend to get up about 9-10am and after that its too hot to run until 8-9pm and I am at work still .

Excuses anyhow so today, got up at 10, had a coffee and went for a 40 minute run.


It is nice at 6am here so I may need to get up and run at 5.30am.

I need to bring my mileage up to a regular 40-50kms again by march to start my 20 week marathon programme.

At the moment I am doing maybe 20-30kms over 3-5 runs but then I will still have the odd week where its 50-60km.

Left leg/knee is really sore, not sure what is going on there.



About 2-3 weeks ago, i went to kneel down at work and seriously, I could not kneel down, the pain was so bad.

Serious, I have had 3 children with no pain killers, so I know pain BUt this was unbelievable.

It was fine standing but as soon as I went to kneel, it would hurt intensely.

I went home and it was ok the next day but have noticed a real nagging, dragging pain in my left kneecap.

Doesn’t hurt to run or anything and has not hurt like it did that night.
